Cows 
We branded up the last twenty head of late born calves yesterday and trailed them out to pasture.  The cattle should be set for a little while now.  It's time to concentrate on Haying.  Taken 6/4/2006.

We took a few more pairs up to the high country after the branding them.  The calves were a little sore yet but we took our time and made it fine.  I needed to get some of the cattle off the water in the pasture they were in.  With these gone it should help the situation.  Taken 5/22/2006.

The two-year old heifers in the snow we recieved from the recent storm.  I don't think they appreciated the snow but they are getting along all right now.  It's all melted now and the grass is growing more.  Taken 4/19/2006.

Almost every year I get a bunch of old cows that I keep down by home for the summer to raise their last calf before I sell them.  This year it's a pretty tough looking bunch of cows.  The youngest is 14 years old and the oldest is 20.  Taken 4/16/2006.
